Ascent Trip Report

Pico is quite highly regulated by the park authorities. There is a registration requirement and fee of 10 euros plus a mandatory safety video and each group must carry a tracking device issued as part of the registration. While this sounds a little over the top, there were over 9000 recorded registrations last year by people of varying levels of experience, and as the weather can turn pretty fast on Pico, it makes some sense. We, however, had a perfect, hassle free walk to the summit.
